May was officially declared Asian Heritage Month by the Canadian Government in 2001.
Over the last two centuries, immigrants have journeyed to Canada from East Asia, Southern Asia, Western and Southeast Asia, bringing our society a rich cultural heritage representing many languages, ethnicities and religious traditions.
This talk is to celebrate Asian Heritage Month in all its diversity and vastness.
